While you create a "forum" there is a field where to instert the parent id, manual input at this stage.

You can't, there is no option within the forum management interface for setting sub-forums.

It can be done however via manually editing the database tables. I told you I'd sort yours for you if you give me a list of which forums are sub-forums of which, but if you want to do it yourself it's very easy.

In the table cms_bbforums for every forum that is a sub-forum set the field parent_id to the forum_id of the forum it's a sub-forum of.

Also in the table cms_bbforums for every forum that contains sub-forums set the field forum_type to 1.

This was in ForumsPlus so I would expect to find it in DF9.3.3. But its location isn't obvious.

Under Admin select Forums, then Forums Management. Create your parent forum and sub-forms if necessary as normal forums in the usual way. Then select Edit for each, and you are finally offered the option of changing the forums into Parents or Sub-Forums.

Ah, it's theme dependent. I don't see the option in my theme (based on redesign), but the options are there in the default theme. You don't even need to create and edit a forum, the options are right there when creating a forum.

I guess that's one of the things that needs to be done to themes to make them 9.3 compatible?

Yeah, I just added the Default Forum Templates to Halo, then tweaked them a bit from there.

It's not that i didn't want you to do them i just don't know where they need to go just yet maybe i need to just switch the theme when creating them i'll give that a try

This is one of few reasons why in v10 there is going to be only one admin theme.

Outdated themes stopped me from expanding Dragonfly CMS, no longer the case, finally.
